What is the best lighting for the outside of a retail store or space?

The best lighting for the outside of a retail store or space is best determined by what the goal of the lighting is and where the lighting is needed. If lighting is needed near entrances and exits, a wall pack is a great option. LEDs are always the best option because they are instant on, flicker free, and have high color accuracy. Dusk to Dawn lighting or motion-activated is another type of lighting that should be considered.

The needs of the particular property should also be considered. If a property is located in a rural area, a bright light will be necessary for visibility when it is dark out. But, if the business is located in an urban area that is already well-lit, a softer light would work better because there is already an abundance of bright light for security and safety purposes.

What kind of lighting is most commonly used for the exteriors of commercial buildings?

These lights can provide bright, even lighting as well as safety and security.
